Robert Pattinson or James Franco for Jeff Buckley Role

Jeff Buckley Robert Pattinson James Franco

According to ABC News, the role of songwriter Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic about his tragically short life is down to two actors: Robert Pattinson and James Franco.

Jeff Buckley, son of musician Tim Buckley, got popular in the ’90s playing cover songs in the East Village before focusing on his own material. In 1997, Jeff accidentally drowned in Memphis at the age of 30. Since he only had one studio album, several songs were released posthumously, including his cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which earned him chart success over a decade after his death.
